The CAGED System for Guitar Quiz

The CAGED system for guitar is a popular method for guitarists to be able to visualise the fretboard and immediately grab the correct notes.

Use the following quiz to train your knowledge of the guitar fretboard. Spending 10 minutes a day for a month will make a big difference, and you don't even need to have your guitar with you.

What is the root note of this chord?


  • In the beginning, practice one shape at a time, and concentrate on those shapes that are the hardest for you.
  • The goal is to see the answer immediately. If you have to think about it, then it won't be fast enough to use effectively on the guitar.
  • When you learn scales, chords and licks, know how they fit with the CAGED shapes. By doing this you will be able to use them in any key, anywhere on the neck.
